    I guess I haven't been looking too close. It doesn't seem like there is a lot of butt hurt out there, this car is more overwhelmingly accepted than any other car I can remember coming out. But I'm mostly going off of what I have seen here, Reddit and instagram.

    Even from myself, and I'm the furthest thing from a Corvette guy, I'm genuinely excited about it. You'd have to be a real die hard to dislike this thing.

    Lets hope this is true, that way the stealerships reduce ADM and the car can be bought at MSRP.

    We already know this is not going to happen. High end mustangs sell with ADM. Corvettes do not. Performance has nothing to do with it either, I dont know what it is. You still have the GT350R being sold with adm, despite originally going for sale in 2015. And now you have the C7 ZR1 which is already being sold at msrp, having been out only a year.

    I agree with him the price for the new gt500 is freaking crazy.

    Base BASE 500 for $74K + ADM or base C8 for $60K?

    Let’s not even get into the ridiculously priced options...

    Hmmm....

    The first person to put DRs on a C8 Vette is a dumbass. It'll happen of course....

    The only vette I would ever buy is a C6 ZR1, but the C8 looks awesome and I really hope it kills the ADM for the GT500s as well. It's stupid paying over MSRP for a car.

    That will take roughly 0.12834 seconds after they start landing in customers' hands.

    not at my post...
    Not to mention good luck finding a base 500, most Ford stores just don’t order them that way and the majority of the dealers will play the ADM **** **** games.
